This is a very small enclosed CCC Adirondack shelter. It has a concrete floor, 1930s fireplace, wood stove and only 2 single bunks, axe and maul, table and benches, wood, cooking counter, outhouse, broom, skiff with oars. The cabin sits 10' (3 m) from the lake shore with no beach. Water is available from the lake or creek. Treat all water before using. Bring your own personal flotation devices, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cooking stove, lantern, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags, fire extinguisher, and fire starter. Cabin users may also choose to bring a small outboard motor (less than 10 horsepower due to wilderness regulations). You are in brown bear country. Brown bear and deer may be seen in the area; good fishing can be found at the nearby lake outlet. This is 1 of 3 cabins on Hasselborg Lake (the other two are Big Shaheen and Little Shaheen). The lake is very popular and has a lot of float plane traffic. Trails to Hasselborg Creek and Guerin Lake depart from the cabin, going to the Hasselborg Lake shelter as well. The lake is 7 miles (11 km) long and part of the Cross Admiralty Canoe route.
